remier League club Newcastle have appointed Eddie Howe as their new manager on a two-and-a-half year deal until 2024.
The Magpies dismissed Steve Bruce on October 20 after his 1,000th game in club management, with Graeme Jones in caretaker charge since.
“This is a wonderful opportunity, but there is also a lot of work ahead of us,” Howe told Newcastle’s website.
He takes over with Newcastle 19th in the table, five points from safety after 11 games.
Howe watched Newcastle’s 1-1 league draw at Brighton on Saturday from the stands.
